Session recording

In its 2018-2021 Strategic Directions, the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (PCC) has highlighted the importance of the shift from traditional authority control to identity management. What are the plans for experimenting with identity management in the LC projects related to BIBFRAME? This presentation will look at the use of Wikidata and other “trusted” sources to provide personal name access to BIBFRAME descriptions. Different configurations for this extension of access to personal names will be explored, such as continuing, lightning, or eliminating traditional name authority control for these entities.
